Heathrow T5

Merson won a competitive tender against strong international competition to design every element of BAA's wayfinding signage. Our appointment led to the larger opportunity to deliver significant improvements to BAA's overall existing signage specification.

A rigorous 14-month design period delivered a completely new signage system which ultimately achieved all key design and implementation objectives as well as exceeding the client's expectations.

Working as part of the T5 Blended Design Team we took into account an unusually wide range of factors, which had to be correctly balanced when devising the best solution for each sign type.

These factors included:

  • Primary aesthetics
  • Weight
  • Sustainable construction
  • Material selection
  • Power consumption

Merson has seen an increase in our airport design commissions since T5 including working at Abu Dhabi International Airport, Aerospace City in Qatar and Muscat International Airport.
